Colts still not a reliable DST option
by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer (12/3/13) The Colts are coming off their best defensive performance since Week 4; they intercepted the Titans three times and forced a fumble in Week 13. And while this was encouraging, it may not be enough to make them a viable start for their Week 14 matchup against the Bengals.
Andy Dalton threw eight interceptions in the three games leading up to the team's bye, but was picked off just once in Week 13. And the Bengals are capable of scoring in bunches, as their Week 6-8 run proved. A big offensive day could offset the handful of sacks that the Colts may be able to accrue.
The Colts have potential, but there are plenty of other DST options available with better matchups and track records. They can be left on the waiver wire in most formats.

The Colts defense didn't do a whole heck of a lot to take steps forward in 2012, ranking 29th vs. the run and 21st against the pass. Robert Mathis led the way with eight of the team's 32 sacks while Darius Butler and Vontae Davis totaled seven of the team's 12 interceptions. The loss of Dwight Freeney might hinder the pass rush's potential but the team's additions of pass rusher Erik Walden, lineman Ricky Jean Francois, cornerback Greg Toler and safety LaRon Landry along with rookie pass rusher Bjoern Werner restock the roster with some hope for an improvement. They remain a longshot to help Fantasy owners as anything more than a one-week replacement option off waivers. (Updated 5/10/13)
